Beginners Ride Update - 25 June

It was great to welcome Karen and Anita on the Club's first beginner ride today - 30 miles for their first ride was very impressive.  

Beginners Ride 25 June 2017

Well done ladies and hope to see you on 30 July for the next ride.

 

FCCC Adult Beginner/Novice Rides

Over the next few months we will be running a new informal monthly ride alongside our usual club rides from Speedys in Cove on Sunday starting at 9.30am.  

The aim of these rides is to introduce potential new members who are unsure about jumping straight into our entry level Sunday club social ride without knowing what that involves and how they can best prepare to join it.

The rides will be led by both male and female members of the club and will hopefully include a stop for coffee at a local cafe.

Open to both men and particularly to ladies we will be covering around 25 miles in distance at a speed that is comfortable for the slowest participant on the ride and will be stopping at various points to explain:

·       Bike preparation and basic maintenance checks

·       What to take with you on a ride

·       How to change an inner tube in the event of a puncture

·       How to ride safely in a group (where to look etc)

·       Verbal calls and hand signals (pot holes and obstruction etc)

Requirements:

·       You should be able to spend at least 2 hours on a bike

·       Your bike should be in good roadworthy condition preferably with a rear light

·       A cycle helmet

·       Please bring a spare inner tube, tyre levers, pump and a bike multi-tool if you have one

·       Water for hydration

·       Money for coffee/refreshments

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: All riders ride as an individual with responsibility for their own actions and entirely at their own risk.  The club strongly recommends riders consider their own insurance cover, at the very minimum for third-party liability and recommend the third-party insurance provided to members of British Cycling or Cycling UK.

Riders should also consider whether they need additional cover for risks such as loss of income if injured following an accident.

 

The next ride will be on 30 July so please register your interest asap by emailing us at clubrides@fccc.org.uk
